Executive Forum:

This is one of Silicon Valley’s most intimate executive forums. It’s where VP- and C-level execs share and network in an exclusive, invite-only setting for frank conversation and debate. This year, we hunker down on how leaders are using AI in key verticals and how fairness and explainability are gamechangers.
 

Speak

VentureBeat's speaking platform is for leading companies and brands applying AI for real-world results. If you have been in the trenches implementing and operationalizing AI, we want to hear your story.

Expo

Transform's Digital Expo is giving innovative, emerging companies who are breaking ground in AI a chance to get in front of the valuable Transform audience – and network with senior-level execs from some of the most notable brands and tech companies.

You asked, we listened — New this year
 
 
 

 

Longer deep-dives

More time will be dedicated to track sessions for in-depth discussions on what worked, what didn’t, and practical advice from the trenches.

More conversations

To facilitate more dialogue and ideas exchange, we are creating more time for Q&A with speakers and overall networking.

Top AI tech showcase  

We are raising the bar for 2020 to identify the most exciting new products.

WHAT OUR ATTENDEES THINK ABOUT TRANSFORM

BRIAN BRACKEEN

Managing Partner,

Lightship Capital

I just took the diversity workshop here at VentureBeat. Amazing, absolutely amazing. It was good to find like your family, your tribe, your kin.

BEAUMONT VANCE

Director of AI, Chat and Emerging Technology,

TD Ameritrade

VentureBeat Transform was one of the best — and best-organized — events I’ve been to. I made great connections and enjoyed hearing from speakers who cut through the hype and got into the nuts and bolts of how AI is really done.

JOHN McELLIGOT

CEO,

York Exponential

I’ve had a chance to network with visionaries from all across the world. Very practically, we actually found clients just from hanging out. That’s been great.

NICOLE ALEXANDER

 SVP, Chief Innovation Expert,

Ipsos

Just starting the entire conference off with that level of sisterhood [Women in AI Breakfast] was one of the things I’ve never seen at a tech conference and I’ve been to many. So we’ve had some amazing speakers over the days and such diversity across the different tracks that you’re able to attend.

NAVIN BODDU

Principle Product Manager,

Oracle

They were one of the best conferences that I've attended so far in the last couple of years on this subject. 

DAN WILKINS

 Chief Marketing Officer, 

Beyond Limits

We’ve found that the conversations have been quality. Lots of people are here looking for solutions to business problems using AI. We’ve been able to explain what makes us different from conventional thinking about AI.
